Next year, Canada will celebrate 150 years.

As a writer and storyteller, I’m offering assistance, on a sliding fee scale, to individuals and community groups who want to share their stories in the form of an anecdote; photo or video with the www.canada150.org project.

From the indigenous peoples to the pioneer settlers, the newcomers and community builders, stories help us celebrate and acknowledge the past and plot a new course for a stronger nation.

With my parents and sister by my side, I arrived in Canada in the late sixties. We sailed from Blackpool, England to Montreal, Canada on the passenger ship, The Empress of Canada.

My Jamaican-born parents faced the challenges of starting over in a new country with optimism and endurance.  Today, just like so many of you, we are proudly Canadian with our own stories to share.
